    4. 4. <Insert Picture Here> “ Virtually all organizations we identified as aggressive analytics competitors are clear leaders in their fields, and they attribute their success to the masterful exploitation of data.” Thomas H. Davenport Harvard Business Review Competing on Analytics January 2006
    5. 5. Are you an analytics competitor? <ul><li>Can you answer yes to these questions: </li></ul><ul><li>Compare performance across time periods? </li></ul><ul><li>Access key performance indicators in near real time </li></ul><ul><li>Identify top/bottom products, customers, employees, costs, channels? </li></ul><ul><li>Understand share of category, product mixes, % sales contribution, % profit contribution? </li></ul><ul><li>Can you benchmark your vendors, sales reps, customers? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you move seamlessly between strategic analysis to tactical analysis? </li></ul><ul><li>Does ad-hoc mean mouse-clicks? or phone calls to IT? </li></ul>
    6. 6. What’s stopping you from competing with Analytics? <ul><li>Is the business: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lacking visibility into business performance? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Showing little confidence in the accuracy of reports? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Given point in time metrics, but asking for forward looking analysis? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Missing opportunities because of lack of ad-hoc reporting? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Operating in a constantly changing environment? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Using Excel and Access as their &quot;reporting repository&quot;? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Is the IT organization and infrastructure: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Challenged with conflicting priorities? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Spending significant resources developing new reports? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Struggling to provide timely and accurate information? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Producing ad-hoc reports or extracts to business users? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Managing to service level agreements? </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. So, What’s the Issue? Reporting Analysis Which customers spend the most? What did this customer buy? What is the Q4 revenue forecast? What are their spending patterns? What is this customer likely to buy next? What if demand falls short of forecast? … Most BI Tools Are Designed for Reporting, not Analysis What happened? What if?
    8. 8. To compete on data you need to move from a Data Monologue to Data Dialogue Reporting Analysis High-level static reports Opening additional reports to answer follow up questions Combining thousands of detail records to calculate averages, percent of total, period to period changes Interactive analysis of a complete, multi-leveled, multi-dimensional data set Intuitively drilling down through a comprehensive data set structured to reflect your business Instantly retrieving just the information you need (speed of thought analysis) Move from… To… Seeing Issues Seeing the issue, isolating the cause, identifying similar potential issues, get the detail needed to take action
    9. 9. Providing Competitive Advantage with Oracle OLAP
    10. 10. <Insert Picture Here> “ Relational DBMS products have boundaries with respect to providing function to support user views of data. The ability to consolidate, to view, and to analyze data according to multiple dimensions, in ways that make sense to one or more specific enterprise analysts at any given point in time, has been lacking.” E.F. Codd Providing OLAP to Analysts: An IT Mandate
    11. 11. <Insert Picture Here> “ The need which exists is NOT for yet another database technology. Instead, organizations require robust OLAP data analysis tools which complement the enterprise’s existing data management system and which are rigorous enough to anticipate and facilitate the types of sophisticated business data analysis inherent in OLAP.” E.F. Codd Providing OLAP to Analysts: An IT Mandate
